The Gift of the Magi

Another Holiday comes around: this time it is Christmas; the US Congress is once again marking the holiday season with their vile shenanigans.

Instead of holiday displays, the benighted Know-Nothing House of Representatives is putting up their own Live Government Shut-Down, where we can watch the beasts throng around their benchmarks and the glow of the lobbyists.

Like O. Henry's story The Gift of the Magi, there is an intense ironic "kicker" at the end where we discover the truth that the House of Representatives has given us a comb... but only after our golden hair has been totally cut off... or, more timely, lost due to chemotherapy, which is not covered by our health insurance.
